R.A. Dickey and David Price lead top AL and NL pitchers (barely) in latest computer rankings

In the latest MLB computer rankings of NL and AL computer rankings just posted by Bias Free Sports, R.A. Dickey of the Mets just edges out Gio Gonzalez of the Nationals in the NL ratings.   These two will likely be the candidates for the NL’s Cy Young award, although don’t count out Johnny Cueto of the Reds, who also has a chance to get to 20 wins before the season is over.

Over in the AL, David Price has a very slim lead over Justin Verlander for the overall number one ranking, but I think the Cy Young award will come down to Price or Jered Weaver, because most Cy Young voters value wins over any other category, and Weaver is the only 20 game winner in the AL.  Price can still get there, and if so, I think he locks up the award.  You can see the complete rankings for all pitchers and hitters by going to www.biasfreerankings.mlbplayerratings.htm and following the links for each category on that page.
